My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Remember

Remember ... when Birthdays were one of the biggest events in your year ?
When parties and guests and what presents were the biggest topics ?
When you really felt that that day would mark a change in your life ?
You would be a year older and now able to do certain things ... walk to the store by yourself, wear lipstick, stay out later, drive, go out on a date, have your own apartment ....

Then as the years went by, it was a matter of babysitters so you can have a birthday dinner alone with your husband... be surprised when your husband tells you he is taking you Away for your birthday ... be glad that the children were old enough to stay up after 9:00 PM  when you all went out for your birthday.
Then the year came when you and your husband were able to leave a list of reminders for the pet sitter and go to Paris for your birthday.
After that, Las Vegas, London, St Maarten, NYC, Jamaica, Argentina ,they all became locations for Birthday Celebrations ..

Remembering birthdays by opening your drawer where you keep your favorite jewelry, the ring from Paris, the bracelet from the little shop in Covent Garden, the posters on the walls  from London and Paris flea markets, the memories, oh those lovely memories.

New memories are being made every day - every minute ! you really can't stop them nor do you want to. But as good as they can be in  the Present, it is lovely going back to the Past and Remembering .
